joeneugs (6324) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle purchased at Berkeley Bowl. It pours a nice clear golden color with a fluffy white head. The aroma jumps out as fresh multigrain bread with some orange and spices. Really digging this grainy/malty aroma. The flavor is similar with lots of wheat and rye with a good subdued spicy, peppery finish. I wouldve liked it a tad drier with a lighter crisper body, but this is a pretty decent drinkable Saison not being heavy or sweet. Nice.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and spice. Taste is lemon, yeast, spice, and grass. Average Saison.

ajnepple (6179) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Dark golden, pale and cloudy with a fluffy white head that laces the glass. The aroma is yeasty and lightly tart with fruity esters, spices and herbs. Light to medium body with a crisp dry feel. Chalky yeast flavor, herbal hops, light spices and fruit. Kind of bland and watery. Lingering unpleasant finish. Meh.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. The aroma is full of wheat and yeast with some grain notes thrown in. I also get a little bit of white pepper and some light citrus. The flavor is very similar. The grain and yeast notes come through first, with some orange and apple character coming through later. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(12oz bottle thnks to mora2000) clear light gold, fine white bubbles. Nose is wheat, raw grain mash, bit of creamsickle, stale fruit, cherry. Taste is a little better, spicy wheat, fruity, odd grain mash, slightly sweet and medium carbonation.

dwyerpg (5957) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2013
My wife loved this, but for me, aside from the quite nice and slightly funky aroma, I was simply whelmed. Its quite sweet in the finishing notes and fairly dominated by orange throughout. Also some dryness in there that works pretty well. Not bad or great but good. Probably good enough.

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Picked up a 16-oz can four pack from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear golden pale yellow colored brew with an average sized off-white head that lowly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of floral hops and a touch of bread yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied bodied, with flavors of spiced saison yeast, a touch of smoked golden grain malt with a touch of grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with a lightly smoked golden grain malt and saison yeast aftertaste with a hint of white pepper.

notalush (5838) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Finally found a bottle of this in the singles cooler at a local store - cloudy golden pour - head is initially fizzy, but it froths up nicely eventually and the retention is impressive - nose of earthy, lightly husky malts, dusty yeast, pepper, floral notes, mild banana esters - light to medium body, with moderate carbonation - lightly tart up front, but dries out quickly - light mineral/limestone - spicy/pepper phenols, especially in the bone dry finish - very mild plastic phenols, but not of the off-putting sort - mild banana esters late (I dont taste them nearly as much as others) - this is quite nice - I really dig how crisp and dry it is - the nose has a couple off notes, but otherwise this is a solid attempt - I must track down a full six pack.

heemer77 (5344) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle. The body is bright almost deep gold copper with a thick dense white head. The nose has plenty of funk and fruity sweetness like apples. There is also that smell of old library books, pleasingly sweet, not dusty. The taste is relatively funky at first, finishing with ashy wood notes. There is also some hay and a little bit of apple core. I got a slightly soapy hint in the finish. Decent effort.

superspak (5323) - Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/12/2013. Pours hazy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, clove, pepper, grass, banana, bread, wheat, floral, herbal, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast ester notes with light malt balance; and good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, clove, banana, pepper, wheat, bread, pepper, grass, floral, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, clove, pepper, bread, wheat, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors with a light bready malt balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very crisp, prickly, and smooth mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice saison! All around nice balance and complexity of yeast ester flavors; and smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
